basically, if you have enough bookmarks to make them scroll, you should see this behaviour

Jet - Seems like a bit of an odd bug. Can you please have someone investigate? I'm interested in whether this behaviour will appear anywhere else in the product.

I can't reproduce this bug. I also can't see how the patch applied to fix bug 1041530 would change font rendering.

IIUC, we switch between subpixel and grayscale antialiasing depending on whether we're rendering to an opaque background or not; and therefore bug 1041530 does seem to have the potential to change this behavior. I haven't tried to reproduce this on Windows, though, which is where it's most likely to be visible.

Given that we're at the end of the beta cycle, there hasn't been progress on this bug, and this bug doesn't seem critical enough to fix in 34 at this point in the cycle, I'm marking this as wontfix. I would like to see an investigation to at least understand the source of the issue soon. 

Jet - Where does this bug fit on your priority list? Do you have someone who can investigate while 35 is still on Aurora?

It's not very high on the list, considering the screenshot attached. Let me know if you see this looking worse elsewhere.

> Do you have someone who can investigate while 35 is still on Aurora?
We can bump up the priority if needed, but bug 1041530 is a fix we'll want to keep in the tree if this is the worst regression.

Given Jet's update in comment 8 I'm removing tracking from this bug.
